When talking about making your home space cozy, one thing that comes to mind is something warm and feels like home. Wool is a very warm and comfortable yarn that is also durable at the same time. It makes wool a special material for home decor.
Whereas alpaca is also very warm and cosy, it is also an environmentally friendly yarn. It is also a lightweight yarn that is easy to use. This yarn is very affordable compared to cashmere and other yarns. However, sheep wool is still the least expensive and affordable than alpaca.
Using alpaca may be better because wool is more itchy than alpaca. It is easy to tolerate alpaca when you are allergic to wool. You may find some when looking for 100% wool, but it is impossible to find 100% alpaca that easily in stores. However, wool and alpaca yarns are perfect for creating a cosy space in your home.
Alpaca yarn is very good because it can create products like hats, socks, gloves, jumpers, sweaters, etc. Some people also make toys, mitts, and rugs from alpaca yarn, which are great alpaca products.

Wool is known to be a natural fibre that people around the world use highly. It has so many properties that no other natural fibre has altogether.
Wool is really good for the environment because it is biodegradable. By decomposing into the soil, it is known to release nutrients that are also essential for many purposes.
It is renewable because many sheep in the world are constantly grazing and growing this natural fibre on themselves. They are under protection by their woolgrowers because they want to keep the wool industry as sustainable as possible.
Wool absorbs moisture and easily releases it, making it a breathable fibre.
Reacts to body
Wool helps you in every environment. If you are feeling cold, it will get warm by reacting to your body. Similarly, if you are feeling hot, it will get cold to decrease your body temperature.
Easy to clean
Wool naturally comes from sheep, which do not try to keep the wool clean. Instead, the wool stays clean naturally and does not allow any stains to absorb in its layers.
Other benefits include being eco-friendly, odour-resistant, and anti-wrinkle.
